Extreme Sports Scuba, this is Aerielle.
Aerielle, who is Aerielle you ask? Well Aerielle works for Extreme Sports Scuba, but maybe you knew that since you called and she answered the phone. So who is Aerielle? She is the wife of Pokey Cupp, the mother to Tucker and Macy, sister to Amy La Due, Aunt to Emma & Calder La Due, friends with Mark and Nicole Willoughby. The list could go on, but who is Aerielle and how did she get into Scuba Diving?
How did you get started diving?
I’ve always wanted to when my sister Amy La Due did but I never could convince my husband Pokey to. We finally convinced him that he was brave enough to put his face in the water.
How long have you been diving?
How many dives do you make in a typical year?
I don’t know, I haven’t counted yet.
What led you want to work at Extreme Sports scuba?
I kind of just fell in to it. I showed up to help out and they’ve kept me ever since.
What other hobbies do you do besides diving?
My husband has all the hobbies, I don’t get any… I just get to help with his I guess which include The Missouri Governor’s Mounted Guard, horse riding, Shooting bows, shooting guns, and Raccoon hunting (coon hunting).
Where is your dream diving destination?
Cozumel or Bon Air, somewhere where the visibility is awesome.
What is your most comical dive experience?
So while I was getting certified, Deb, Nicole and I were down doing mask skills. I went to remove my mask and put it back on when I accidentally spit my regulator out. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe. Deb came to my rescue and we got the reg back in and the mask back on and she decided we should take a relaxing dive from there.
